#2499: HOLY CRAP

I have never had an interview where I ended up talking to six people.

Not all at once, fortunately.

When I was finished with talking to everyone and the first guy came back in, I asked, "Is there anyone else here I haven't met yet?"

"I think I can go get the cleaning guy...."

It was exhausting and an emotional roller coaster. For the most part, I think I did pretty well; there were a few points during the process that I thought, Crap, I'm blowing it! but I think on balance I did all right.

The altered suit fit perfectly and the $10 shirt I got on clearance from Kohl's fit just as well, and went well with the suit and tie. I looked like $1,000,000 $750,000.

I didn't end up needing the manuals and briefcase I'd searched for. "Better to have it and not need it", etc.

Anyway, all I want to do now is to crawl into bed. Once I finish my sandwich, I think I'm doing just that.

#2500: Totalitarianism in action

Anyone who reads the Fungus knows--by now--about Travis Corcoran having his civil rights "temporarily" suspended by the police in his hometown because he said "1 down, 534 to go" after the Gifford shooting in Arizona.

Good luck getting at his website, Dispatches From TJICistan. Expect 404 and 403 errors.

Borepatch has the story.</a>

I heard about this from Og.

Good God, I hope Mr. Corcoran wins a huge fucking lawsuit against the goose-stepping assholes that run the town he lives in.
